CRONKHITE BURIALS Warren County, Indiana The other three cemeteries noted on the map in this area are Cronkhite burials, and two are no longer in existence. CRONKHITE ONE A Cronkhite family burial is on the west side of the road that goes south out of Marshfield, about one mile. The stones have been gone a long time. CRONKHITE TWO Close to and on the east side of the road is another Cronkhite burial of the pioneers Levi and Elijah. Catherine OUDERKARK of New York, wife of Elijah CRONKHITE, d/o Jacob and Katherine, died 2-17-1839, age 41y, is the only stone that remains of this burial. All other stones are gone. CRONKHITE THREE Grover Williams' mother remembers a small family cemetery south and west of the other two Cronkhite burials that is believed to have been another Cronkhite burial. It has been gone for a long time. As with many of these smaller cemeteries, the locations have been fairly well determined by talking to people who remembered their location at one time. Fragments scattered about or found in creek beds of barn lots are all that remain. This list will serve as a record of the search that was made by Grover Williams in the 1960's to locate the sites as near as possible. FROM CRONKHITE FAMILY RECORDS Abram March 20, 1823 - July 9, 1907 "Although I have found only two marriages, listed below, in the family records, I believe he must be the Abram Cronkhite, who on November 24, 1843, married Clarissa Arabel Wait, here in Warren County. It is said that Arabel had children which were buried in the now destroyed graveyard south of Marshfield. Abram went to Marion County, Iowa, and I presume both of his later wives were natives of that area."
